ST. CLOUD - We asked you to "Pack the Porches" today (Friday), and that's exactly what you did.

Catholic Charities says the event today at the Pioneer Place on Fifth Theatre and St. Cloud Hyundai raised nearly $10,000, and almost 1,800 pounds of food.

This is the third year the Pioneer Place has participated in the event, and the first year for St. Cloud Hyundai.

WJON broadcast live at both location this morning.

Minnesota FoodShare Month actually continues through April 7th.

Catholic Charities is located at 157 Roosevelt Road in St. Cloud
Donations are accepted from 8:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 8:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. on Wednesdays.
